Hi there. You are visualizing floaters in eyes and the common causes could be vitreous syneresis, posterior vitreous detachments and retinal detachments, regression of the hyaloid artery, retinal tears if red blood cells are released from leaky blood vessels, cystoids macular edema and tear film debris. You need to show to an ophthalmologist who would examine you with an ophthalmoscope or slit lamp. This would help in diagnosis and treatment would be according to the cause. If a cause is not found, you may be investigated for ocular migraines, intracranial tumor or cyst around the optic chiasma and disc. Hope this helps. Take care.
I have experienced this too. I went to an Ophthalmologist and he told me there was nothing wrong with my eyes, but that there was something going on behind the eyes. Then, I had an MRI of my head/brain and an abnormality was found in the back of my brain which probably is causing ocular migraines.
I would first rule out a problem with your eyes first before doing anything else. You are so young. I started having this problem after I turned 40.
Have you had problems with eye infections and/or trauma to your eyes in the past?
No infections or trauma, but check out my occipital lobe!
The radiologist told me my MRI results were "normal" but I think it looks like my occipital lobe is a little squished. My symptoms fit temporal lobe epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, acephalic migraines, etc etc. Who knows? I hope I find a good doc.
The MRI image looks strange. I would seek a second opinion about that MRI.
Uhhh so I'm seeing this "vortex" thing every day now. Is that especially bad?
Have you consulted a Neurologist yet? I would suggest you do.
Yeah, I have.. update here: http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Neurology/Piloerection--miosis--lacrimation/show/1495409
. The neurologist doesn't seem to understand that there's something more wrong than "just epilepsy". I'm making a new appointment soon
Your occipital lobe looks strange. When did you see this Neurologist last? I think I would be getting a second opinion if you can.
I do not buy then idea you have floaters. Uh, uh. Floaters are absolutely positively nothing like what you have described.
As Londres suggested, try to get another opinion.
